Immigration as a Social Determinant of Health: What Can We Learn from Border Communities?

Tuesday Feb 6 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Dr. Heide Castañeda’s research on immigrant health reveals glaring patterns of inequality and pathogenic conditions produced by the interplay of structural factors including poverty, the policy landscape, and enforcement practices. Immigration is shaped by social issues, but must also be viewed as a social determinant in its own right. Adopting this perspective will not only give us a better understanding of contemporary immigration and related issues, but will also help us create more effective interventions in response to the root causes of ill health in migrant communities today.
